And the winners of 2012 Mega Mosaic Makers and Topps Tiles Mosaic competition are…
The Abbey School & artist Elizabeth De’Ath
The school mosaic designed around our mission statement “together we can…,” which was created by all the students and staff, has won first prize in a national competition organised by BAMM (the British Association of Modern Mosaic) and sponsored by Topps Tiles.
The mosaic was put together under the direction of artist in residence Elizabeth De’Ath who ran a whole school workshop here last year. The 3 judges were unanimous in choosing the project for the first prize of £250-worth of vouchers to spend on mosaic materials. This will certainly help the art department budget go further for Mrs Andrew, Head of Art, who initiated the whole project.
Every day the students can see the mosaic they all helped to make together as it has been installed in the quad by the hall. If you haven’t seen it yet, have a look at the pictures on the website www.megamosaicmakers.org.uk
